HOMEOWNER’S INSTRUCTIONS  
For Platinum and Red Series AirVac Units  
(
for Household Use Only)  
IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTES  
Please read the instructions carefully! Through many years of continuous use -- and through quality tests that are  
ongoing at our factory -- AirVac central vacuums, attachments and accessories have built a remarkable record  
for cleaning effectiveness and safety. However, there are potential hazards that could occur if the system is not  
installed and operated correctly and safely. READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING THIS APPLIANCE.  
REMOVE DEBRIS  
BUCKET FROM  
BUCKET SLIDE  
LATCHES  
The Platinum Series vacuums contain a self-cleaning  
inverted cloth filter. When the power unit is running,  
the cloth filter is pulled upward inside the vacuum body.  
When the power unit is turned off, the weighted center of  
the filter causes it to drop, depositing dirt and dust past  
the dust cone and into the debris bucket. It is normal to  
see some accumulation of dirt on the filter. The inverted  
cloth filter should not be removed for any reason  
except to replace it if it becomes damaged or torn.  
THE FOLLOWING FORMATS ARE USED FOR SAFETY NOTES IN THESE INSTRUCTIONS.

Platinum Series Service Indicators  
Bag Indicator  
The Platinum Series central vacuums have an indicator on the control panel to display the approximate debris level  
of the vacuum’s replaceable dust bag. The green, yellow, orange, and red indicators will light, showing the bag  
debris level. The bag indicator displays the dust bag level whether the vacuum power is on or off.  
Check that all gaskets on wall valves are sealed.  
Check to see if debris bucket or bag (Platinum Series only) needs emptying.  
Check for obstructions in the hose, tools, or vacuum lines.  
Check for any ruptures or breaks in the vacuum duct system.  
If you encounter any problems with your equipment, verify the operation against the information contained in these  
instructions. If, after checking your system you are unable to determine the cause of the problem, contact your local  
AirVac dealer for assistance or call our Technical Services department at (800) 421-1587. Be sure to have the exact  
model number, serial number, and the nature of the problem ready. If possible, CALL FROM THE SITE. We cannot  
effectively troubleshoot your system if you are not calling from the location where the equipment is installed or used.  
NOTE: The debris level indicator light is meant to provide an approximation of the actual level in the dust bag. In a  
heavy use environment, (i.e. pet hair or new carpet fuzz) the bag may fill before the indicator reads full.  
Service Indicator  
The Platinum Series central vacuums have an indicator on the control panel to display the status of the vacuum’s  
motor and when the motor will require service.The service indicator displays the motor status whether the vacuum  
power is on or off.
